    None of that is what you said. You said they were exempted for reasons of wealth alone. I dont agree with that.

    Re: Senate investigators: Apple sheltered $44 billion from taxes

    Then please educate me by telling me why they were exempted. I'm not someone who thinks they know everything and I'm open to learning. It seemed to me that they were able to buy their way out of a serious serial felony involving billions of cartel dollars they knowingly handled. This appears to be exemption and I can't come up with another reason other than money for this special treatment. That doesn't mean there isn't one so please share your knowledge (or your surmise).

    Is that just a "feeling?" If not, then what rights of yours has the routinely government violated?

    I never said it was illegal

    This is another side show to shift attention away from the many recent failings of the administration.

    I cant prove a negative. You are the one who made the claim, so provide me some evidence that they were exempted for reasons of wealth alone.

    Re: Senate investigators: Apple sheltered $44 billion from taxes

    Surely you know that I have no "evidence". Some things are what we call APPARENT. Could I dig up some similar OPINIONS©, sure. I';m not alone in my thoughts. And I can did up opions that Obama is the greatest President in history - would YOU buy that? I didn't think so.

    Nothing being discussed here will change the course of history. These ar speculative conversations at best. If you think I am wrong then just say so. Then speculate as to why these bankers were treated so differently than anyone lse might have been. I'm already an adult and familiar with "being unable to prove a negative". Lets leave that train of thought for the religion or philosophy sections.
